Why?  It's the boat builder who will be paying.

Well..not really I would suggest it is already a sunk* cost!  The ostentatiousness of their luxury product combined with its epic launch failure is just plain funny.  To me at least.

*pun most certainly intended

For 10million I was expecting it to seem more, but it did say it was 85ft long, so probably much more impressive in real life.

I have seen some yachts in the Bahamas that must have cost 25 or 50 mil then.

Hopefully they have a sinking fund to cover these unexpected losses.

Be careful, they often don't float much better than top heavy boats!

For a business that could be taking on water, this could be a real anchor to their bottom line.

I almost keeled over laughing on that one.  Thanks!

It looks like the picture only shows the top of the yacht, there's still a bunch underwater in that shot.

Sounds like they'll be a rock bottom priced yacht on the market soon. I mean It has to be worth it to fix it and recoup some of their costs right? right?

Afterwhich they won't be able to ballast their checkbook.

Perhaps a lone shark will be able to float them a loan....as long as it is on the level (of course). Oh buoy, me hopes whatever company takes this on has a star board of directors!

Now I can tell you are just trolling for comments.  I almost fell for your suggestion hook line and sinker.  Fortunately I could see you coming from a (nautical) mile away and will now lobby to deep six your idea.

Just when I thought we're wrapping up - boom!  Another joke has me keeled over.

Captain Ottawa likes to submerge himself in his work.

Also, if this thread is about to navigate a narrow channel we'll be in dire straits.  However, if an Egyptian tried to make me sail the long way round I'd Suez canal.

If the sun is over the yardarm for you, consider some liquid refreshment to drown your sorrows.
